What’s it about? The son of a robotics genius discovers a flaw in the programming just as an army of robots is about to be activated. When his father is killed, Derrida flees and accidentally cryogenically freezes himself for ten years. He wakes to the destruction caused by the robot army.
What are your first impressions? There are a lot of really cool elements going on here. You have the evil corporation putting profit above all else. There is an out of control robot army, laying waste to the world. Then we meet Vidaux who is a Demolition Man. Seriously, Terminators versus Demolition Man!
Favourite character so far? So far, no one has really stood out. Vidaux is cool, but there needs to be more to him. Mage has the most potential to be interesting, with the possible time travel stuff, but that’s not got there yet. Other than that there is Donna, a crazy contract killer hired to get rid of Derrida, and she is cool.
Who do you want to see more of? There is bound to be more Mage. I think time travel is going to be a big part of this. So, we definitely need to see more of her. I also feel like Donna will end up on Derrida’s side, so that’s going to be interesting to see… if it happens.
Are you going to continue watching? Yes, there are too many awesome science fiction elements for me to put this down, even if the characters are a little flat at this point. I hope they develop more, but if not, I’m all in on this one for the plot anyhow. I love a good time travel story.
